Sunday

An early start begins your Devonshire adventure. We will take comfort stops on our way to the hotel and will have time to settle in before your evening meal.

Monday

Today we travel into Exmouth. Exmouth is home to an indoor market and range of shops to be browsed and explored amongst the splendid regency architecture. To discover a bit more about the history of the town maybe follow the Blue Plaque heritage trail and explore the heritage of the area. This afternoon we join Stuart line Cruises. This 75-90 minute cruise will take you on an adventure which will include live commentary about the local flora and fauna.

Tuesday

After breakfast, please join your driver for a trip into Minehead. Minehead is a bustling seaside town on the edge of Exmoor. A beautiful sandy beach, pretty harbour and high street busy with shops and cafes will get you started. This afternoon we meet the West Somerset Railway. The West Somerset Railway itself is Britain's longest standard gauge steam railway and runs for twenty miles from Minehead to Bishops Lydeard - which is four miles from Taunton. For the first half of its journey the Railway passes through the Quantock Hills, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, and for the second part the trains follow the coastline between Exmoor and the Bristol Channel. Please be aware this may be pulled by a diesel or a steam powered locomotive but cannot be confirmed till nearer the time

Wednesday

This morning we travel into Sidmouth. The stylish Regency resort of Sidmouth, situated on the Jurassic Coast, England's first natural World Heritage Site. "A town caught still in a timeless charm" - that was the Sidmouth that captivated the Poet Laureate, John Betjeman, and Sidmouth still captivates today. This afternoon we return to Tiverton to meet the horse drawn barge. Being one of the last remaining Horse-Drawn Barges in Great Britain, a trip on the "Tivertonian" offers a truly unique and memorable living heritage experience of a time before steam. Expect a magical time on your trip getting to know the staff, heavy horses, barge and wildlife.

Thursday

Sadly we have to say good bye to Devonshire and return to Lincolnshire. Your driver will arrange comfort stops on the way.
